Android Auto Wireless Keeps Disconnecting
2
I have a Kenwood Audio DMX906S, and a Pixel 3 XL.  After 5 minutes or more of a wireless Android Auto connection, the Kenwood head unit reports that the wireless connection has disconnected.  I can reconnect it, and a short while later it will disconnect again.  How do I address this?

Make sure that battery optimisation is turned off for Android Auto and Google Play Services, also try to relax the power saving rules as they might cause your device Wifi to get cut off.

I already have battery optimization turned off for Android Auto and Google Play Services.

Specifically how do I "relax the power saving rules"?

I'm having a similar problem with a PIxel XL and DMX905S.

Mine usually reports the disconnect before it even starts working.  Looks like Android Auto is in some sort of loop on my phone, and often stops responding.

I had high hopes after receiving the notification that Kenwood released a firmware update for the head unit I have, unfortunately this has NOT resolved the issue

I have downloaded the firmware for the Kenwood DMX906S and applied it to the head unit, the application version is now 1.8.0009.5900. 

I have a OnePlus 6t running stock OxygenOS version 10.3.8, fully updated security patches on Android version 10, and no battery optimization for Google Play Services, or Android Auto.

This is very frustrating since this feature is the primary reason why I bought this head unit and it's been broken for over a year now. Even on short trips it won't stay connected for more than 5-10 minutes before disconnecting, no improvement with Firmware updates or with many updates/improvements to the phone over the year.
